Places to Share Your Live Streaming Event
“Live Concerts Online is for all musicians and bands affected by the situation worldwide, where festivals, concerts, and gigs have been canceled for public safety reasons. Musicians are encouraged to share their upcoming live streaming events (on any platform). This group is not a revenue source, it is solely to help the world stay connected through music.”
– Dave Merkel (Group Creator)
Live Streaming Event Organizers
“The idea is to keep some live music out there circulating, introducing musicians to new audiences and giving music fans the hit they crave. Each act will perform for 15 minutes from their own live feed with a 5 minute turnaround, which is fed into the Lockdown Festival page for all to enjoy so that fans can stay in the one place and catch music from other acts. By having acts perform via Facebook Live, fans can track the act back to their own page, learning more about them, etc.”
– Jason Elliott (Event Organiser)
* The First Lockdown Festival is Saturday 21st March 5.30pm CET – 11pm CET.
